Report Cards (K-5)

In this section

Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, Cambridge-Isanti Schools has adopted Standards-Based grading in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

What does this mean? Standards specify the skills students should know and be able to do by the end of the school year. Your child will be graded based on the level at which they demonstrate proficiency of each standard for each grading term. This provides information about your child's individual strengths and progress towards mastering grade level learning goals, and also shows areas where additional development and support might be needed.

Students will now be graded on a 4-point grading scale based on the standards set for each grade level by the state of Minnesota. In Standards-Based grading, the level at which a student is meeting expectations is a 3. See the table below.

4 = Exceeding expectations     3 = Meeting Expectations  
2 = Partially Meets    1 = Not Yet Demonstrating
